Ideal camera for holidays
I just returned from 5 weeks overseas holidays. Took two cameras, Pentax K100D and a Canon A1200.
Purchased the Canon for the holidays as I anticipated that the Pentax would be a bit bulky and heavy for a lot of the time.
Thought I would use Canon at night and for discreet shots in museums/restaurants etc. Ended up using the Canon for most of the shots! It is ideal for holidays as it is compact (easily fits in a shirt pocket), has an optical viewfinder (which I used regularly) and had A4 batteries (same as the Pentax). Carried a spare couple of rechargable batteries with me at all times. Only had to resort to these once or twice.
The Canon took excellent shots (a bit of barrel distortion, but easily fixed later) and was much quicker in switching on, composing and shooting. Excellent for sneaky shots!
A particularly handy canera when on tour.
